With a career spanning two decades and enveloping the birth, rise and evolution of techno, Detroit native Carl Craig is widely considered to be one of the most influential musical figures to emerge from the city and a true pioneer of the space-age genre. In fact few others have recorded so much quality music in such a variety of styles than Craig, who jammed distorted beat-box samples into lo-fi electro riggings, crafted epic house tracks like his remix of Tori Amos’ ‘God’, and recorded the most sublime Detroit techno since godfathers Juan Atkins and Derrick May were at their peak. After an apprenticeship during the late-‘80s with May, Craig began releasing his own recordings in 1989, first on Transmat and later on his own label, Planet E Communications. During the following decade he spread his work between solo aliases Paperclip People, Innerzone Orchestra, 69 and his own name. With each new project and each change of musical direction he distinguished himself as one of the few artists to consistently hit the mark with productions whose subtleties in the living room more than matched their infectious energy on the dancefloor. Craig’s techno roots have always been the watermark of his music and with Francois K in attendance Deep Space on Monday 22nd promises to be another essential musical journey into the abyss.
